Objective of this project is to have fun with your kids. And kids should enjoy making it
We bought a kit for making fruit fridge Magnets, it was good but we had left over plaster of Paris. Did not know what to do.
We needed another mold to cast sometime that is of interest to my son
We got creative and used old chocolate molds to make tiny robot fridge magnets
Step 1: What Do We Need ?
- Plaster of Paris
- molds of your choice, we used chocolate molds
- fevicol or glue
- paint and paint brush
- a bowl and spool
Step 2: Casting
Add half a cup of plaster of Paris into a bowl then slowly add water, till the consistency is not too thick and not too runny
Using spoon pour into molds. since my mold was made of silicone, I did not apply any releasing agent
Let the cast set for 30 minutes and de- mold.
Step 3: Painting
Let your kid paint into any color of their choice. it does not have to be perfectly painted. Kids should enjoy....
After painting leave it to dry for 3hrs. or if you cannot wait use a hair drier to speed up the process
Step 4: Magnets
So one can use regular ferrite magnets or magnetic sheets easily available in stationary stores.
Use fevicol to stick magnets to the backside of each piece
Leave for 30 to 40 minutes till the glue is dry.
Once done place them on your fridge and show to your friends
